‘Stranger Things’ team up with Nike for exclusive new shoes
Nike and Stranger Things have formed a collaboration on a show collection ahead of Netflix announcing the return of the show.
Releasing the line in instalments, Nike will begin rolling out the ‘Hawkins High’ line on June 27th and will include editions such as Nike X Hawkins High Blazer Mid, Nike x Hawkins High Air Tailwind 79 and more.
“Unfortunately, a few of the shipments never made it to their destination. These vehicles all had one thing in common…they were last seen on surveillance footage passing through Hawkins, Indiana,” they said in a statement. “Nike, concerned and confused, never mentioned these missing shipments to anyone for fear that something supernatural was at play.
“34 years later, signs of the missing shipments are popping up, piece by piece, and it’s clear that there is something deeper, darker and more evil brewing. Fortunately, some of the missing shipments have been located.
“Their contents are what we now know as iconic Nike styles: the Cortez, Blazer, and Air Tailwind ‘79.”
In more Stranger Things related news, Netflix has released a new season 3 teaser as the show counts down to its summer release of the new episodes.
Ever since the network revealed on New Year’s Day that the show would officially return to our screens on July 4, anticipation has continued to grow.
Now, as the July release date draws closer, Netflix are counting down the summer with a clip of the show’s heartthrob lifeguard Billy Hargrove who has the town swooning as he arrives for a shift at the pool.
Back in October 2017, executive producer Shawn Levy explained that the production had set out a detailed plan for the episodes in the planning, he said: “It’ll be an eight or nine-episode season.”
He continued: “The number of episodes will be dictated by the amount of story that excites us. We now know what is going to happen in season three to every character.”
Netflix have already confirmed that Stranger Things 3 will debut in summer 2019. “It’s a handcrafted show,” Cindy Holland, VP of Netflix’s original content, explained. “The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy have worked really hard, and they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year. And so they really want to take the time to get it right.”
